Berkeley Vegan Earth Day: Call for Speakers

Berkeley’s third annual Vegan Earth Day celebration is accepting applications for event speakers.

Berkeley, CA, home to Cinnaholic and vegan soul food, has a lot of plant-based love to offer––and you can be a part of it. The third annual Vegan Earth Day event is looking for speakers. While there are a few specific topics the organizers would like discussed, such as veganism beyond food and a guide to being an eco-friendly vegan, applicants are welcome to submit their own proposals and ideas for topics. Last year’s celebration brought a full house to the screening of Vegucated and over 19 vendors and 15 speakers. The deadline to apply is January 30.
